The Sundarbans: Where Beauty Masks a Silent Struggle

Imagine a land where majestic tigers roam amongst tangled mangroves, a place where rivers braid into the vast Bay of Bengal. This is the Sundarbans, a breathtaking yet harsh world. Yet, beneath the beauty lies a struggle. Children, with eyes as bright as the Ganges dolphin, are denied the education they crave. Poverty forces them to fish alongside their parents, their futures uncertain. Women, the backbone of these communities, fight to raise their families amidst cyclones and rising tides. Their dreams, like the whispers in the reeds, go unheard. Will the Sundarbans echo only with the roar of the tiger, or can education be the song that empowers its children and women?

Our Work

In the enchanting yet formidable expanse of the Sunderbans, where the tangled mangrove forests weave a tapestry of challenges, the pursuit of quality education seemed like an unattainable dream. Swapnopuron, however, defied the odds and turned the impossible into reality. Venturing courageously into the remotest reaches of the Sunderbans, Swapnopuron emerged as a transformative force, unlocking the doors to education in areas where such opportunities were once scarce.

From its modest beginnings with just 25 students in 2012, Swapnopuron has blossomed into an institution with over 850 active students and 36 dedicated teachers by the year 2023.

Our Works

After 13 years in Kolkata, I craved a deeper impact. Leaving formal education, I pursued a dream: bringing literacy and opportunity to the Sundarbans. Starting with one play school, we now have 7 branches, educating 850 children. Witnessing their potential fuels my ambition to open 50 centres by 2026, empowering these remarkable children to dream big.
